What did you get for Christmas in 2011?

Recommended Posts

Boule & Bill

I haven't read much of Calvin & Hobbes, but what I liked what I saw. I might get a small collection of those comics when I get some money.

...I insisted on taking my C&H collection along with me to school. I've discarded most of my artifacts from childhood, but those I hung on to. They're still a blast to read.

 

What's most amazing about C&H is the way it just got better and better. When Watterson earned the right to do anything he wanted with the Sunday strips, he produced genuine works of art. The strip in which Calvin turns his yard into this desert landscape at sundown is utterly beautiful.

 

The snowman strips are probably my favorites; the way Calvin tears apart the art world is downright hilarious.

Is it the dispatch/note for "Jaywalker"? The Teeth-talk sounds suspiciously like the Crocs.

 

(Even down to the names: Floyd and Bob)

 

You got it!

I like Calvin and Hobbes and The Far Side too.

The ones I follow now are Pearls Before Swine, Bizarro, Dilbert and xkcd.

 

xkcd is especially fun if you're into programming / maths / physics.

Some of my favorites:-

I remember seeing this xkcd comic a while ago and liking it then; I still think it's oddly touching.

I got a learn how to write in C++ book once for Christmas, but I haven't even opened yet. In fact, there's still about 5 presents I haven't opened for about 3 years. :P

Now that it's been a few months, I think it's fair to talk about whether or not we've done much with our Christmas presents. :)

 

To be honest, I haven't really touched the new Wii a whole lot. Maybe it's been the focus on CCLP1 and level-making for now, but I'm hoping to get back into the Mario Kart world - and perhaps purchase a 3DS soon.

I don't even remember what I got for Christmas now :P

 

I only remember getting an iPod alarm clock, which I use pretty much everyday now. Man it's so useful just to blast your music and make CC levels and forget about the world for a few hours :)

I don't know if I could see Tile World on my big screen...a 3DS seems a bit more appropriate. :)
